, it was an obama proposal and something that obama wanted. and it turned out since the two years have passed a lot of democrats on the hill weren't so crazy about it. they feared defleeting the social security trust fund. so they weren't really pushing for it. so if leader of both parties were not crazy for it obama wasn't going to stick his neck out for it. >> jennifer: right. and it was adopted in the middle of a recession as envisioned to be a temporary tax increase. the final thing i would point out as we review how astonishing it was that republicans voted for a tax increase the last time this happened in 1993 with bill clinton, he had democratic control of the house and the senate, and even then al gore had to come in and cast the deciding vote in the senate. so that's how amazing it is. it's pretty astonishing. michael because you wrote a bit about history today on this, and the recalcitrant ones throughout history that have always been there, i really appreciate your perspective. thanks for joining us again inside "the war room." >> always a pleasure. >> jennifer:
